“Marseille’s hot noise was so different from Paris’s cool sophistication.”
— Julia Child —
Some photos from our time in Marseille back in June. We arrived in a mistral, and set off to explore the Vieux Port.
On the following day we hired a boat to take us out to see the famed Calanques.
… and the day after that we picnicked and hiked around Niolon.
“`I always forget between visits what a raucous, colorful city this is,’ Paul wrote. `There seems to be 10 times as much horn-blowing, gear-clashing, shouting, whistling, door-banging, dropping of lumber, breaking of glass, blaring of radios, boat-whistling, gong-clanging, brake-screeching, and angry shouting as anywhere else.”

And in response to all that, Marseille, we say … cheers and merci !
